Happy Birthday and Earth Day to Me!

Enough already with the nagging! Billie, the next time you come up to our neck of the woods I will thoroughly enjoy smacking you. Wink Wink!

So, as most of you know I had the ultimate pleasure (ugh) of turning 28 years old recently. I have never been so under-excited for a birthday in my life. I guess I should have listened to my Mom when she told me the older I get, birthdays become just a number. Oh well, I guess I should just accept it. One thing I would like to share that helped me through my traumatic birthday experience was the little soiree that was planned for me by my super husband. (That was a major run-on, sorry!) We went to OKC without the kids (woo...I know, crazy huh?) and he bought me a new car!!! I was so excited. When I was driving back to the hotel I felt like a 16 year old with a brand new license hot off the press. Apparently I was smiling the whole way there and I had no idea I was until my cell phone rang and Brent told me I looked like I just got my braces off. Those of you who have had the pleasure of having braces, when they come off your teeth feel all slimy and you can't stop smiling or looking at yourself. Bad analogy, I know....that's all I could come up with! We met some good friends for dinner at a hip little restaurant and proceeded to go back to the hotel to celebrate. We had so much fun. I guess turning 28 wasn't ALL that bad! Mason's 3rd birthday was on the 26th and I promise I will have lots of pictures to post and maybe a little video or two. If I can figure out how to do it.......you know Me........it could be awhile....:)

YAY! I was beginning to wonder if you would ever blog again! We (well, I) am nosey and like it when it is updated at least once a week if not more! Since I don't get to see your kiddos I need to read about them as much as possible!

I agree with Billie at least one post a week!!! A new car for your birthday! WOW! Jason bought me icecream bowls for my last birthday! Well, I was prego and eating icecream everyday. At least he didn't buy me workout equipment!;) Anyway, can't believe Mason is already three. Ella turns it this next Monday. Crazy!!!

SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAD A GREAT BIRTHDAY AND YOU TALK ABOUT HOW YOU SMILED THE WHOLE WAY TO THE HOTEL BUT I DON'T THINK I HAVE EVER SEEN YOU WHEN YOU DIDN'T HAVE A SMILE. BY THE WAY "HAPPY BIRTHDAY"

Happy Birthday!! I will be turning 29 in August and I am not looking forward to my very last year in my 20's. I don't feel like I am 29, I feel like I am 21. My grandma used to say, "the mind stays young and the body grows old, so you never feel like you should be old". Anyway that's so cool you got a car, best gift idea ever!!!
